I'm sure all 250 people attending NASCAR races in 2020 will be devastated

How many tracks are stock cars and bikes sharing? I'm not being a smart rear end, I legitimately don't know.

Off the top of my head:
-Road America (which has a chicane before the kink for bikes)
-Indy (which goes the opposite direction of the Indy/Xfinity track and also has a separate bike loop)
-Daytona (only for the Daytona 200, which used to be a bfd but is now basically a club race since the big bikes outgrew it and began shredding tires on the banking)
-Mosport (Not sure if the Pinty's guys still race there, but that track is horribly dangerous for bikes)

I imagine motorsports can hang on a bit longer with closed races, given there's less direct contact, but idk

Huski Chocolate is a lifestyle, not only a product. It's about adventure & expedition. Living life to the fullest. It's a perfect recovery drink after training, because of the healthy carbohydrate and protein content, easy to digest and perfect for replenishing tired muscles.

The biggest thing is flu season also has a vaccine. This helps blunt the spread of it when it jumps to a vaccinated person and suddenly hits a dead end.

I'm sure they do club racing and such other stuff.

ICYMI:

WEC cancelled Sebring (travel ban)

Supercross cancelled Seattle this weekend (Watch More Supercross)

NBA suspending all games indefinitely

NHL making a decision tomorrow (gonna be shocking if they don't suspend)

President Trump and Vice President Pence are in charge of getting this all under control

I don't see how NASCAR (or Indycar) can easily escape from this, unless they plead and practice ignorance.

The Indy round is this weekend and I was leaning towards going, but not now. Expecting it to be cancelled too since the Big 10 tourney here has now barred anyone from attending.

Itís morning on this side of the world and McLaren pulled out of the F1 because a team member ó one so far ó tested positive. There will be further fallout soon Iím sure.

I wanted to be positive and think behind closed-doors races would be okay, but Iím wavering on that as well. Might be best to join other events in suspending things for a couple weeks.

This could be a golden opportunity for NASCAR to draw casual fans back because there sure as hell won't be much else on in the sports world this weekend.

Best case scenario, it'll be like when WWE got Smackdown on Fox. Big debut of people who realize "holy poo poo, this crap is awful" and don't come back.
